Abuja – Ven. John Agboro of Lagos Diocese, Anglican Communion, has urged Christians to take prayers seriously to strengthen their relationship and encounter with God.
Agboro made the call the ongoing 7th Edition of the Divine Common Wealth (DICCON) holding at the National Christian Centre, on Tuesday in Abuja.
The theme of the conference is: “We Have the Man Jesus’’, taken from the Book of John Chapter 5 Verse 7.
The revivalist for the ongoing programme noted that nowadays prayers had become so worldly that they were not acceptable before God because they lacked power.
According to the cleric, Christians cannot rise from a place of drunkenness, immorality, depravity, and perversion and expect the power of God to be at work in their lives.
“There is a time and season for everything under the sun and the season for the expiration of your challenges are here.
“Heaven has decided to change the ugly situations confronting God’s children. If the nation will rise then the church must first of all rise and walk so that the world may follow.
“Everything on earth have time and season and the season of our long suffering will surely come to an end because heaven will surely remember us,” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the prayer session had so many Anglican faithful in attendance just to rededicate their lives to God and also to receive their healings. (NAN)
